Automotive Technology Maintenance Consumables PBL Project

Automotive Technology Maintenance Consumables (ATMC) Automotive Maintenance and Service is a foundation skill set required for proficiency in the Automotive Technology Industry Pathway. This lesson series addresses the approaches taken in addressing the upkeep and maintenance of automobiles and their engines from the standpoint of consumables (spark plugs, spark plug wires, oil, oil filters, air and fuel filters). Students will be presented and taught the fundamentals and pitfalls associated with the task sets presented as connected with student prior knowledge about automobiles, in general. Students will start with engine-specific component consumables like spark plugs and spark plug wires and continue on to lubrication, induction, and fuel filtration system operation. Then, the students will progress from video-supported lecture series into demonstration/modeling by the instructor on lesson objectives. With guided practice in small group lab sessions, students will be given enough time to become proficient in basic consumable maintenance for automobiles. ATMC Lesson One: Ignition Theory and Spark Plug Maintenance ATMC Lesson Two: How to Remove and Replace Spark Plug Wiring ATMC Lesson Three: How to Remove and Replace Oil and Oil Filters ATMC Lesson Four: How to Remove and Replace Air and Fuel Filters This project is brought to you by David Le with support from the CTE Online curriculum leadership team and detailed coordination provided by the Course Team Lead Dr. Susan Morris, Ph.D.
